Comments Formed by UV-A photooxidation and induced by ionization radiation through thymidine radicals interacting with molecular oxygen [PUB_0471, PUB_0474]. Reaction rate computed from 1) total gamma ray base damage yield 1.7e-9 1/Gy/DA [PUB_0497], 2) 305 nt/DA, and 3) relative yields of various damaged bases [PUB_0461, PUB_0501].
